Market and 29th Street (30th Street Station)
On April 17th, we called PennDOT and their consulting engineers, Urban Engineers, about the hazardous situation that has been created by the JFK Boulevard bridge work at Market and 29th. Pedestrians going east and west on the northern side of Market Street are forced to walk into oncoming vehicular traffic to cross the street. There are no signs indicating what pedestrians should do to cross safely. The Urban Engineer rep promised to look into it. We've taken some "before" pictures and video and will wait a few days to see if the situation improves.
